Album Remarks & Appraisals:
A suite in eight parts, written by Markus Burger and Jan van Klewitz during a jazz clinic by Kenny Wheeler at the Banff Center (Canada), this is a highly energetic recording featuring Wheeler at the height of his career.
Proceeds from the sales of the album will be donated to the scholarship fund of the Banff Center. Markus Burger is an LA-based pianist, composer, and bandleader who studied with Peter Walter, John Taylor, Kenny Wheeler, and Kenny Werner. He has released 11 albums featuring his own compositions and arrangements, both solo and with his newly-formed jazz collaborative, Accidental Tourists.
